As hard as you've worked to ignore 'Honey Boo Boo' and the rest of the Shannon clan from their ubiquitous TLC reality series in recent years, the network has made it that much easier, and for good reason. The notoriously reality-skewing network has officially canceled 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' altogether, following troubling reports that “Mama June” Shannon had resumed a relationship with a convicted child molester.
Honey Boo Boo
Reality superstar Honey Boo Boo (you know, of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' fame) is apparently mixing up her skill set. The tiny television star is now working on her cheerleading stylings. Ms. Boo Boo and her mother, Mama June, hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat up the newest season of their show, along with the news that Honey Boo Boo is now dabbling the cheerleading arts.
From Nicki Minaj's reality show, to her fight with fellow 'American Idol' judge Mariah Carey, to Lindsay Lohan's latest desperate scuffle with the law, we've been bombarded by more than enough WTF moments to keep us talking for a while. But when it comes to which moment/person/event from the past year (movie and/or TV-related, of course) was the most ridiculous, Honey Boo Boo seemed like the worst influence by far.
The moment we knew that 'South Park' would be taking on the obese in wednesdays' latest episode "Raising the Bar," it was inevitable that hte long-running Comedy Central satire would find some way ot work in America's newest sweethearts, Honey Boo-Boo and her cringe-inducing TLC family. But, with Eric Cartman the only big-boned character 'round these parts, how will Eric react to having the limelight shifted off of him?
Together, though the little rascal known as "Honey Boo Boo" and her Mama Boo Boo, known as the Coupon Queen, aren't always the most graceful when it comes to pageants -- or life in general -- they make one heck of a team. But they're hiding something... Just as 'South Park' revealed the 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' stars to be nothing but Crab People, so too are we outing Honey Boo Boo and the Coupon Queen as Krang from 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'!
If you haven't yet seen TLC's 'Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo' we applaud you. You're better than us. But let us give you a quick refresher course. Honey Boo-Boo has three sisters; Pumpkin, Chubbs and Chickadee. Eighteen-year-old Chickadee just had a baby named Kaitlyn (white trash nickname forthcoming). Kaitlyn has three thumbs. And they feed her Mountain Dew. We'll let you decide whether those two things are related.
When news hit that 'Toddlers & Tiaras' breakout star "Honey Boo Boo" would be getting her own reality show, we all collectively dropped our jaws. Not only does this have the potential to be a huge mess filled with "Go-Go Juice"-induced comas and all around chaos, it also looks like it'll be incredibly addicting to watch.
Don't believe us? We've all seen previews for the upcoming 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,' but TLC's latest promo for the show has a lot more that we haven't seen.
This week wasn't too ridiculous, thanks to people still recovering from BBQ meat comas, but then the middle of the week hit and Kathie Lee Gifford stuck her foot in her mouth and some clown gave one of those 'Toddlers & Tiaras' girls her own show. Oh, and Seth MacFarlane said something about Jewish people.
What's worse than watching a bunch of ill-fit mothers spray tan their 6-year-olds, force packets of sugar down their throats, and make them prance around on stage in a Madonna-inspired cone bra? Probably nothing. But TLC is coming close to the next worst thing with a 'Toddlers & Tiaras' spin-off starring "Go-Go Juice" guzzler, Alana "Honey Boo Boo Child."
